New England winters kind of limit the homeless problem. Like everywhere, the pathetic care for the mentally ill and the opiate problem create homeless people but there are a limited number of shelter beds and it's tough to be homeless when it's 0F and there are no shelters available.

I think the # of homeless actually increases around christmastime in NYC ... maybe they are coming out hoping people are more generous around the holidays.
